New Minnesota Guy

Hey everyone,

Just picked up a 2008 4-door and I love it! My first Wrangler and definitely not my last. Right now I've got 33x12.5R17LT Nitto Mud Grapplers on it but I need something new before the winter. I'd like to keep the same size tires but something that is a little more gas efficient and better on the snow. Anybody have any good suggestions?

Thanks,
Mike

They're expensive but the Bridgestone Dueller H/L Alenzas are a great highway/light off road tires. I've been running a set for a few weeks and I like 'em. I'd be interested to know though how the tread pattern does in snow???
